Out and About – Week of August 10

     Sunday, August 23, a new show will open at the Carnegie Center for the Arts. Located at 107 North Main Street in Three Rivers, the Carnegie would like everyone to know about “First Call for Fall”, which opens from 2 to 4 P.M. on August 23 and runs until 5 P.M. on Sunday, October 18.

      “First Call for Fall” consists of three exhibits: “American Eagle”, which depicts the evolution of our national symbol; “Windsong Artists”, who have created their own new artwork from a reference photograph; and finally, “This Land is Your Land”, an invitational of work done by Friends of the Carnegie.

      The Carnegie Center for the Arts offers an array of culture for people of all ages. Truly something for every member of the family, it is another example of something fun and educational, and it’s all FREE.

      For more information, please contact the Carnegie at (269)273-8882, or send e-mail to donna@trcarnegie.com. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Saturday hours are from 10 to 3. I remind you that all exhibits are open and FREE to the public.

     One of my favorite aromas is the smell of chicken cooking on an open grill. This Friday, August 14, from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M., the Three Rivers Police and Fire Departments will hold their second annual Open Pit Chicken Fundraiser in their parking lot on West Michigan Avenue in Three Rivers. The cost is $6.50 per half-chicken dinner, and the dinners will be delivered anywhere in St. Joe County if you order at least 10 dinners. For more information, phone (269)273-6154, extension 101.

      The Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) will hold their annual golf outing fundraiser Saturday, August 15, starting at 8:30 and going until noon. The action takes place at the St. Joe Valley Golf Club, M-86, near Nottawa. The cost is $50 per person, and foursomes are required. The $50 includes golf, a meal, and a variety of prizes. By the way, hole sponsorships are still available. Adam LaRay has more information; you can contact him at (269)290-0294.

      It’s almost time for the Mendon Riverfest, which means that it’s also time for the Mendon Riverfest Book Sale. The book sale happens this Saturday, August 15, from 9 A.M. until noon at the Mendon Carnegie Library. Proceeds from the sale will be put towards non-budgeted items and events at the library.

     If you’d like your children, ages three to five, to develop an interest in reading early on, it would behoove you to accompany them to Pre-School Storytime at the Three Rivers Library. Located at 103 South Douglas, the library offers this period of storytelling on Tuesday mornings at 10:30. The Storytime is designed for children ages three to five, but all children are welcome to attend.

     The next on my list of Laws of Ultimate Reality  is the LAW  OF  GRAVITY –  Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

      School starts in less than a month. Parents, I’m sure, are more excited about this than most students are. I don’t know where the summer has gone. You still have plenty of time to get out of the house and participate in many of the activities that abound here in the Three Rivers community. I’ve listed several, and now it’s up to you to get Out and About.
